Jacksonville Jaguars news roundup

Some Jacksonville Jaguars news from around the internet you may have missed.

Jaguars QB Chad Henne not rattled by sacks, early miscue | jacksonville.com

Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne had a flashback Sunday when his first pass against the Titans was tipped and intercepted by Alterraun Verner. When he was playing for Michigan against Notre Dame in 2006, his first pass was intercepted by Chinedum Ndukwe and returned 51 yards to set up a touchdown. But Henne wasn’t rattled in that game and came back to lead the Michigan to a 47-21 victory that included three touchdown passes to Mario Manningham.

Gene Frenette: Cecil Shorts doesn't short-change Jaguars with his big plays | members.jacksonville.com

As Cecil Shorts III was talking in an EverBank Field hallway Sunday following a relief-inducing, 24-19 win over the Tennessee Titans, Jaguars receivers coach Jerry Sullivan happened to walk by. He immediately stopped to pay Shorts the kind of compliment any football player longs to hear from his position coach. "I just want to say [Shorts] is a great kid," Sullivan told people within earshot. "He plays the game the right way. That's the way you're supposed to play."

A good feeling at last

At last, there was a payoff. Forget the losses. Forget the frustrations. Forget the disappointments. The Jaguars may not be able to forget them permanently – nor should they forget them for long, for that matter – but on a cool November afternoon under perfect blue skies, the Jaguars could at least forget for a while all that had gone wrong this season. Because for the first time in a long time, Sunday was about what went right. “I feel very happy for our players,” Head Coach Mike Mularkey said following a 24-19 victory over the Tennessee Titans at EverBank Field Sunday afternoon. “It’s not relief. I’m just happy that our players can feel good about all the time and effort that they put in and get a win, especially at home . . .”
